Title VI: Race, Color, National Origin

 “… Through engagement that links the classroom with the world, and a commitment to diversity, inclusion, justice, and sustainable living, the Hendrix community inspires students to lead lives of accomplishment, integrity, service, and joy.” —Hendrix College Statement of Purpose 


Title VI and Race, Color and National Origin Discrimination

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects people from discrimination based on race, color or national origin in programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title VI states that:

No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

Programs and activities that receive Federal financial assistance from the United States Department of Education (ED) are covered by Title VI.  Title VI complaints must be filed within 180 days of the date of the alleged act of discrimination.

Who can submit a Title VI report?

Anyone can make a report about an incident involving race, color, or national origin. If you believe you have experienced discrimination based on race, color, or national origin or have witnessed Title VI discrimination firsthand, please fill out an incident report. 

If you are in an emergency situation, call 911. If you believe you have been the victim of a crime, bias-related or otherwise, contact Hendrix College Public Safety at 501-450-7711.

All members of the Hendrix College community are urged to promptly report any incident(s) that negatively impacts a community member or group and occurs on-campus or at a college-affiliated event. Please use the Title VI Reporting Form if you experience or witness an incident on campus, via social media, or at a college-affiliated event involving discrimination based on race, color, or national origin. Title VI complaints must be filed within 180 days of the date of the alleged act of discrimination.

Examples of Title VI incidents include, but are not limited to any activity that intimidates, demeans, mocks, degrades, marginalizes, or threatens individuals or groups based on that individual's or group's actual or perceived race, color, or national origin.

All reports will be treated with discretion. Information from reported incidents may be shared with appropriate individuals in order to help protect the safety and health of those involved. If we are provided with contact information for the reporting party or impacted party, Dr. Fulbright will reach out to those reportedly impacted by the reported behavior.
